Anyone have a credible source for equipment in the PNP inventory? I accidentally removed an addition by another user of the MP-5, but thought that if we were going to have an equipment section, may as well list more equipment? --Edward Sandstig (talk) 21:25, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Can someone pls put a Equipment section. I would do it my self, I actually have some ideas of what weapons does the PNP use bur I wont put down anything without refrences. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:17, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

About the PNP[edit]

The PNP is supposed to be a police force civilian in character, but I notice that it is still military in many ways: frequent saluting among personnel; use of black berets; trousers bloused over combat boots; use of black CT uniforms; use of military style belt buckles; use of garrison caps.

Suitablility of incidents section[edit]

I notice there is an incidents section but it is not clear what criteria are used for an incident to be included. This is a police article so in the ordinary course of events the police will be involved in many incidents. Is every single last murder investigation going to be included? Other articles on police forces do not contain such a section. If such a section is deemed important enough, then it should probably be spun off. Lambanog (talk) 09:34, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't know whether or not there are consistent guidelines on this, but with a bit of random browsing I see
Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 12:32, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Anytime a police incident involves something International, such as holding citizens of foreign passports, it is more than a domestic police case. The 1998 Manila blackmail incident is already publicised at an international level. Preferably someone from WP:law enforcement needs to take a stand on this. Benjwong (talk) 18:14, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Regardless of international involvement (and most of the examples I've mentioned above have no international involvement), WP:GNG says, "If a topic has received significant coverage in sources that are independent of the subject, it is presumed to satisfy the inclusion criteria for a stand-alone article." I would presume that if a WP:SS article exists which is within the topic area of this article, that article merits a mention here. I would also presume that if a subtopic exists which meets WP:GNG guidelines, it merits mention here whether or not a standalone article on that subtopic has appeared. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 07:14, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Following on my comment above, I have raised this at WT:N#Subtopic notability. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 07:41, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

The decision in include or exclude alleged police misconduct incidents from an article on that police force is entirely up to that page's editors subject to content policies and guidelines. Notability refers to the inclusion of a topic as stand-alone article which is not the issue here. patsw (talk) 17:55, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

I'm removing the content quoted below here from the article because I can't figure out how it relates to the article, because it is SHOUTING, and because it contains a badly formatted section heading.





Perhaps SKY EAGLE SECURITY AGENCY is a part of the PNP. If so, this ought to be clarified and other parts of the PNP which have similar topical relevance should be given similar weight in the article. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 03:41, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
